National Health Executive hosted its second Digital Healthcare virtual event in July 2022, which brought together industry leaders, influencers, and innovators to discuss everything healthcare and digital.
The event opened with Dr Phil Waywell, Director of Digital Partnerships at Yorkshire and Humber AHSN delivering an exclusive keynote session. As the Director for Digital Partnerships, Phil is focused on ensuring data infrastructure and assets are used to their full potential to support decision-making, thereby improving patient access, experience, and outcomes.
Phil is also focused on leading work with regional and national stakeholders to develop a blueprint for partnerships between health and care organisations and commercial partners that deliver mutual benefit and ensure an appropriate share of any resultant value.
Shortly after we brought together a panel to discuss Clinical Communications and Collaboration. We were joined by:
- Andy Dylag, Corporate Sales Manager, EPOS Audio UK
- Paula Baird, Programme Lead Digital Workforce, NHS Education for Scotland
- Alan Milbourne, Policy Lead for Workforce: Digital Skills & Leadership Digital Health & Care Team, Scottish Government
This panel's discussion centred on how clinicians, organisations, and patients use digital channels for communication and the critical role digital communications play in ensuring the effective and high-quality delivery of healthcare services.
